Arash makes sure you are going to have a good time in Kyoto with his great Persian and Indian food
Arash’s Kitchen is a restaurant in Kyoto offering Persian and Indian food just behind Heian Shrine, really close to Kumano Shrine. There are a few reasons why this restaurant stands out from others in Kyoto: the restaurant offers Halal food, which until recently was quite hard to find in Kyoto; the restaurant offers Persian cuisine, which you don’t often see around here. And most of all, the muscular proprietor of the restaurant, Mr. Arash, is a great guy.
The atmosphere at the restaurant is warm but very different from most other restaurants in Kyoto. From the water pipes on display to the neon signs, everywhere you are reminded that this restaurant offers something other than kaiseki cuisine. And maybe because some people want to take a break from all that Japanese fine dining in Kyoto, this restaurant is especially popular among foreign patrons.
